Its been struggle to find winners at Newmarket this week and again no luck on Thursday with 5.50pt loss ,very disappointing run from Spanish Moon who never really picked up in last two furlongs,not sure if it was the ground being to firm as most of his wins lately had been on softer ground though had won on good/firm twice before.
The other two bets ran OK without winning,Lord of the Stars finished second though well beaten by R.Hannon trained Casual Glimpse&Invincible Soul ran fair race in third behind Critical Moment without looking like winning.
